Is there a limit on the number of jobs that an ITM A4 Agent attribute group or query can use in a situation?

ITM A4 agent on i5/OS 7.1

I have a situation that uses the “OS400 Job” attribute group; the situation monitors for missing jobs. Recently I have experienced issues where the alerts fired but the jobs are actually running in the system, and had been for many hours.

One of the iSeries administrators mentioned that there seemed to be an unusually high number of jobs in the system, and I wonder if there is a limit on the number of jobs that the attribute group or the query used by the situation can handle?

I have since modified the situation to limit the result set to only *BATCH jobs. The issue has not reoccurred since.
